The instrumental group The Piltdown Men was Ed Cobb and Lincoln Mayorga. Both were involved with the group The Four Preps. In 1960 they recorded the old nursery rhyme `Old MacDonald`and for the flip "Brontosaurus Stomp". "Brontosaurus Stomp" made it to # 75 on the Billboard charts, helped by the new cartoon series called the Flintstones .In the UK, "McDonald's Cave" was the A-side, and peaked at # 14. The follow-up was an ambitious choice : Rossini's "William Tell Overture" became the source for "Piltdown Rides Again" and in the UK it peaked at # 14 (again). The third single coupled a Henry Mancini composition, "The Great Impostor" with "Goodnight Mrs. Flintstone". EMI in the UK chose the latter as the A-side and by March 1961, the record reached # 18
